Photograph by our awesome friend Laura Zastrow Photography
We’re TJ & Shannon Uttke. We got married in 2014 and live in the midwest with our loyal dog, Beau. Together, we are wedding, portrait and commercial photographers. We thrive on creatively connecting with clients and aim to make the best images possible. We take a limited number of weddings per year so you have the best experience possible.
We love telling wedding stories the way they organically unfold, not the way a magazine wants them to look. We don’t photograph to get an instagram like or a magazine feature. We photograph because your children’s children will someday look at these photos and aww over how in love you are. We want to capture the love you two have for each other so it can be cherished today, tomorrow and decades to come. If you look at our photographs and can see yourself in them, it’s likely we’ll connect.
Since you know all about our professional-side by now, here’s some of our personal favorite things…
